Downtown Potter - Soda Fountains & Museums

Potter Offers Nebraska Small Town Charm

You don’t have to go far out of your way to visit downtown Potter – it’s just a minute’s drive from I-80. Unwind at city parks or at the Reading Garden beside the library downtown.

 In one of several restored historic buildings, Potter Sundry is an old-fashioned soda fountain serving homemade food and ice cream desserts. The Tin Roof Sundaes are legendary.

The A Collective Gathering Flea Market is next door. Nearby is Chestnut Street Memory Station antique store, and the old Lincoln Highway Cafe, now known as Bags Bar and Steakhouse

The Railroad Museum on Front Street displays Union Pacific Railroad History. Potter Historical Museum on Sherman Street preserves local history. Both museums open by appointment. (308) 879-4356.
